Vancouver-Based Look to the Sky Joins Unified Pictures Film Fund

Unified Pictures has reached an agreement with Vancouver-based Look to the Sky Films to join its recently announced slate fund, Variety has learned exclusively.

The fund, which will produce at least three films annually with budgets up to $15 million, was announced in May at the Cannes Film Festival. Lorenzo di Bonaventura is teaming with Unified Pictures on the drama “American Violence” as the first project in the fund with Canadian venture firm Victory Square Labs.

In addition to bringing further capital into the fund, Look to the Sky will provide ongoing production support for films set to shoot in Canada.

“We are very pleased to increase the scope of the fund’s reach with the addition of Look to the Sky, and while not all of the films will be Canadian based, it is comforting to have local support on the films we earmark for Vancouver,” said Unified Pictures founder Keith Kjarval.

Unified, founded in 2004, has produced more than 20 films, including David Lynch’s “Inland Empire,” David M. Rosenthal’s “A Single Shot,” Clark Gregg’s “Trust Me,” Zachary Sluser’s “The Driftless Area” and William H. Macy’s directorial debut, “Rudderless.” Unified premiered “Vincent-N-Roxxy,” starring Emile Hirsch, Zoë Kravitz, Emory Cohen and Zoey Deutch, at Tribeca and is in post-production on Macy’s “The Layover,” which stars Kate Upton and Alexandra Daddario.

“We are thrilled to be working with Unified on their exciting new slate,” said Sky founder Sefton Fincham. “The films they have their sights set on are exactly what Look to the Sky was founded to produce.”
